Fishing report for 7/3/20

Report is the same as last week. Unbelievable  stretch of good fishing for whatever trips your trigger. The water temps are going up so I think our best walleye fishing may slow down. Remember, Starbuck taxpayers own Starbuck City Park not the mayor and city council!

Fishing report for 6/26/20

Still very good walleye fishing on Waska, Reno, and Mary. On Waska 16-22 feet of water using spinners and live bait has been great. Use live bait on Reno and Mary during the day. Sunrise and sunset  in 8-12 feet of water using shallow cranks has been best on Waska. Bass and sunfish are still shallow and easy to catch on Waska. Emily is still good for catfish. Remember to help save the Starbuck public park from private enterprises. Starbuck mayor and city council has forgotten who the park belongs to!

Fishing report for 6/5/20R

Reno has started getting walleyes using jigs snd minnows. Walleyes on Waska at sunrise and sunset in 8-12 feet of water using crankbaits. During the day go to 22-24 feet of water using live bait. Long and Emily good for walleyes. Waska and Reno have been good for bass. Channel cats on Emily using cut bait. Sunnies and crappies are good on Waska and Reno. Lots to try!

Fishing report for 5/22/20

EXCELLENT!! Weather  warmed up as did water temps. Walleyes have been good on Long, Emily, Waska, Pelican, Ann, and Reno to name a few lakes. Northerns are good on Emily and Pelican.Sunfish good in Starbuck Marina. Crappies biting on Glenwood side of Waska. Bass opener this weekend and Waska will be tremendous. Call for more specifics.

Fishing report for 5/15/20

Very slow opener with very few walleyes caught.Bad weather and low water temps were main reasons for lousy opener. Some walleyes are being caught on Long and Reno but not consistant. Lots of northerns from shore on Emily. Sunfish has been good in Starbuck marina. Crappies are good on Reno. No reports from other lakes due to lack of fishermen.

Opener predictions?

I have no idea what will happen. This week and weekend weather sounds cool and damp. Water temps are upper 40’s. Small shallow lakes will be your best bet. Emily should be good but crowded. Try also Steenerson, Long, Ann, and Reno. Waska gets better after opener. We have road construction here but we will be open!


Fishing has been excellent on Waska this past week. Sunnies and crappies in the Starbuck marina. Cappies on the Glenwood side of Waska. Reno has also been good for crappies. We have had a really warm week of weather.
